Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for allowing us to experience your little piece of heaven down by the bay! We had such a wonderful time and are so sad to leave. We never vacation the same place twice but the whole family insists on making an exception after our stay! Would love to come back next year with a boat! Howard, Randy, and Ryan were so nice and helpful. The house was wonderful as well as the little extras that made it so nice (i.e. Bag of ice in the freezer and bath & body hand soaps at all the sinks). The beach was exceptional and the being out in the bay in the kayaks was awesome! We have already bragged about your place to all our friends and now are just hoping that there will still be an opening next summer for us after everyone else books their trips!

Dreamy, relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most relaxing time! If you're looking for a place to getaway from it all, this is the place to do it. The house is beautiful and the property is so peaceful. We honestly can't wait to go back. Thank you Kathy and Jerry for letting us into your Fishing Creek world.

Quiet and Peaceful retreat

  • 3 of 5

We were there for a family wedding on Taylors Island. Kathy and Jerry Sadler were prompt in returning my calls. There's 2 reasons why I gave this review 3 Stars. They do not have an iron and ironing board available for guests at the house and we needed one because we had dress clothes to press for the wedding. Second reason is that while all bed linens were clean, most of the towels in the house looked old, dingy and smelled musty like when there's not enough detergent used to wash them or too many washed at the same time without enough water or detergent. Other than that, we would return to stay again and recommend it to anyone wanting a quiet place to relax, fish and go crabbing.

Jerry responded quickly and fixed whatever problem there was with the A/C on the second floor which went out during our second night in the house. Kathy was the person I communicated with when booking the house and she was just as responsive to my questions.

As long as you do not want luxury in a house, this one will do wonderfully! It's spacious enough for 12 persons.

Owner's Response: Hi Evelyn! Thank you for the review. We are sorry we did not have an iron or ironing board. We do list all available appliances on our home page. You are our first guests to request an iron, so it is something to consider. All linens and towels are laundered, I will definitely bring your concerns to the attention of our cleaning people. I am replacing the towels slowly, they seem to get a lot of stains on them, I believe they are often used outdoors. Jerry was very concerned about the a/c and was glad he was close by and able to get it going! That is a luxury that is definitely needed on Hoopers Island. We welcome you back anytime!

Beautiful home in a beautiful place.

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about this home. During our week stay we went without nothing and we're extremely comfortable. I would hands down recommend this home to anyone. Whether or not you have kids, this place is the place for you. We kayaked, swam, watched the sunsets and sunrises, crabbed, searched for sea glass and built sand castles among so much more. Old Salty's was as good as always. The home was a great place to make memories with our kids and my parents. We plan to come back twice a year and as long as we can, we will stay here. Perfect house for a perfect getaway. Thank you so much!

Great weekend stay!

  • 5 of 5

This property is everything you need in a perfect setting. We had a group of 10 adults and were all very comfortable sleeping and plenty of room in the living area for us to all relax. This is not a fancy updated home but was fantastic for the price. Kitchen was well stocked, we used both outdoor grills and the restaurant nearby was good food and friendly staff. Also we really appreciated the board games the house was stocked with! Thanks Kathy,
